Connecting biology with the world today.

Chapters conclude with an 'Application' feature that discusses a current societal issue, connecting biology with information that is currently circulating in the news or on social media.

On-page glossary supports reading comprehension.

Providing immediate assistance, the on-page running glossary offers most definitions in slightly different wording from the text. Having all terms in one place is also useful as a study guide.
